Solar Energy Harvesting
SunBridge Solar Crew on the Roof 2013
In Fall 2020 we added an additional 33 kilowatts of solar panels on the remainder of the south roof of the main building to maximize its solar production potential and reach 68 kilowatts. We have found this additional capacity has allowed the ecovillage to produce about two thirds of its power.

Eventually, more panels mounted on a new structure on the south side of the building covering part of the parking lot will enable the ecovillage to become net zero: meaning we will produce all the power we consume by around 2022.
